Stunning Results With Full Arch Restoration

rohnert park full arch restorationWhen you have lost most or all of your teeth, there is still hope for enjoying a full and beautiful smile again. With a full arch restoration, we can use as little as four dental implants to support a complete set of dentures. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa, CA, oral surgeons talk about how we restore your smile.

The Loss of Your Smile’s Stability

When you lose all of your teeth, or at least the vast majority, this could mean serious trouble for your smile. For example, stability can be lost as the body suspends or diverts the flow of calcium and phosphates to the jawbone around the missing roots. This causes the jaw to lose mass and density, so further tooth loss can occur and with it, a prematurely aged appearance. You could not only look older, but struggle with eating your favorite foods or even speaking clearly. This loss of stability can also limit tooth replacement options, as there is often not enough tissue to support dental implants. However, we can help with a full arch restoration.


All-On-Four uses only four specially placed dental implants, which require less structure to stay in place. These will be able to support the full weight of a new prosthetic, so you can gain a new smile without the need for grafting or sinus lift procedures beforehand. Once we insert these, the body will accept them as natural roots, stimulating the growth of tissues as the flow of calcium and phosphates resume. We then create a custom-made denture and attach it to the implant posts with abutments. The prosthetic is designed using lifelike and durable dental ceramic, so it looks natural and absorb daily bite forces.

Moving Forward

We can attach the denture to the posts in the same visit, so you leave with a full smile! We will provide aftercare instructions as your smile heals. You don’t have to remove the denture for cleaning or soaking, as they’re fixed in place. You will be able to eat your favorite foods, speak with clarity, and enjoy a smile that can last decades, possibly even a lifetime in some cases!
